4:01 pm
during their years in captivity have a secret birth to beatings. to their own missing persons posters displayed on the wall. reports of a suicide note in which the suspect confessed to his crimes. but first from fox this thursday night, the chief prosecutor in the cleveland house of horrors case says he may seek the death penalty against the manual accused of kidnapping those three women and holding each of them prisoner in his home for a decade. the prosecutor says it stems from accusations that aerial castro impregnated one of his victims at least five times. then starved her for weeks and beat her until she miscarried. aerial castro was in court today for his arraignment on kidnapping and rape charges. a judge ordered him held on $8 million bond. he is now said to be in isolation on suicide watch. and this afternoon, the prosecutor says he plans to go after the suspect with everything in his arsenal. >> i fully intend to seek
4:02 pm
charges for each and every act of sexual violence, rape, each day of kidnapping, every felonious assault, all his attempted murders, and each act of aggravated murder he committed by terminating pregnancies that the offender perpetuated against the hostage during this decade long ordeal. >> shepard: of course, this chapter of it all began on monday when amanda berry escaped from castro's home and made a frantic call to 911. >> i've been kidnapped and i have been missing for 10 years and i'm here. i'm free now. >> okay. and what's your address? >> 2207 seymour avenue. >> 2207 seymour? it looks like you are calling me from 2210. >> shepard: she was just across the street. police showed under and rescued dejesus and michelle knight as well as berry's 6-year-old daughter. a daughter berry says castro fathered. sickening details continue to pour in.
4:03 pm
according to the leaked police report amanda berry gave birth to her daughter in a plastic baby pool. michelle knight is said to have helped delivering that child. even performing cpr on the newborn after aerial castro threatened to kill her if that baby died. our rick leventhal live at the cuyahoga county courthouse tonight with more. rick, the suspect in all of this looked like a very different man in court today.>> shepard, castro was te exact opposite of the behavior that he has been accused of over the past 10 years or more. he had his head down the entire time he was in court which was a few minutes or so. his chin was buried in the collar of his jail jumpsuit. looked like a meek, beaten man. he was the man dolling out the beatings 10 years or more on a regular basis brutalizing those three women repeatedly according to police after kidnapping them by offering them each a ride in his car. castro, of course, is the one in captivity with a guard posted outside of his
4:04 pm
cell 24 hours a day just in case he tries to kill himself. shep? >> shepard: what other details of note did you get from that police report, rick? >> well, the women, according to the police report, told investigators that was astro initially kept them in chains in the basement, but then eventually moved them all into rooms upstairs on the second floor of the house and would test them by leaving them untied and pretending to leave the house and if they tried to escape he would beat them. in fact, amanda berry says on monday afternoon she thought it was a trap when the big inside door was left unlocked and as she went to yell for help, she fully expected aerial to appear and beat her again. this afternoon the cuyahoga county prosecutor asked the media to give these women some room, allow them time to heal and not pressure them to do more interviews because they don't want to jeopardize this investigation, shepard. they need to interview these women because more charges could still be coming. >> shepard: rick leventhal in cleveland for us this afternoon. meantime, the daughter of the suspect, the older daughter says she is devastated by what her father is accused of doing.
4:05 pm
in fact arlene castro was reportedly best friends with gina dejesus before the kidnapping. she is one of the victims. today on abc's good morning america, she had a tierful message for him. >> i would like to say i'm absolutely so, so sorry i really want to see you, gina. i want you to meet my kids. i'm so sorry for everything. >> shepard: arlene castro claims she didn't speak to her father very often when she did the conversations with usually quite brief. there is now a fund to help these three kidnapping victims as well as the 6-year-old girl. the cleveland courage fund is raising money to help them as they try to resume some normal life if you would like to donate it's at more than three hours ago the jury was set to start hearing the penalty
4:06 pm
portion. the aggravation portion of all of this. one day after finding jodi arias guilty of murder in the first degree. the court was supposed to tackle the question of whether jodi arias should go to prison or eventually the death chamber for killing her ex, travis alexander. the hearing didn't happen. 25 minutes after it was set to begin they postponed it no explanation at all. told fox station my fox in phoenix she doesn't want to spend her life in prison. >> i would much rather die sooner than later. longevity runs in my family and i don't want to spend the rest of my natural life in one place. you know. i'm pretty healthy, i don't smoke. and i would probably live a long time so that's not something i'm looking forward to. >> shepard: of course, she doesn't get to make that decision although she is currently on suicide watch. we have more of that interview coming up just minute now inside fox report. first get to dan springer who is life outside the courthouse in phoenix. do we have any idea why they postponed this thing, dan? >> well, shep, those who know why it was postponed
4:07 pm
until next wednesday are not saying a word. everything got sealed. there is plenty of speculation it may somehow be connected to that extraordinary interview that jodi arias gave. imagine, imagine being her lawyer and seeing that thing pop up on tv. just hours after her conviction. we know that she is on suicide watch, so it's possible she is not stable enough to be in court today. but there is also the question about defending your client against the death penalty when she says she wants to die and that tape can be used and can be seen by the jury. so, it's another delay for the victim's family which appears united in their desire to see areas pay with their life. they said through an attorney yesterday that they plan on filing a wrongful death civil suit in the near future. that would allow them to get any money jodi arias may earn in the future due to her note notoriety. arizona has the son of sam law which would prevent her from a book or movie in the case. she could make money from selling other things. of course they have to get through the sentencing
4:08 pm
phase. that was just made more complicated yesterday. shep? >> shepard: sure was. dan springer for us. after the jury found jodi arias guilty yesterday. made it perfectly clear the prosecutor's work is not finished. they still have to pursue justice for her victim travis alexander and he issued a statement that reads, in part. we look forward to the next phase of the proceedings where the state will present evidence to prove the murder was committed in an especially heinous, cruel, or depraved manner. of course, that next phase was supposed to begin today. brian foster a criminal defense attorney. is he live for us from phoenix this afternoon. is any of the thinking about why they may have postponed this about this interview that she did with our station in phoenix? >> well, you know what? there is a lot of speculation among the local attorneys here. a lot of us believe it has to do with the interview she did with local fox 10. and in fact maybe she is doing it against the advice of her counsel which i'm sure she is. maybe the defense needs time to prepare in light of the use of this video during the mitigating
4:09 pm
phase, the death penalty phase there is a lot of speculation. i'm pretty sure it has something to do with that all together. >> shepard: are you surprised the attorney allowed that? >> i don't think the attorney allowed it i think that jodi arias just as she has done throughout has done whatever she wants to do. i'm sure her attorneys have been telling her throughout, have no contact with the media. you're just hurting your case. jody is a master manipulator in my mind and i think that she had an ulterior motive for doing that interview. i think it's going to come back and bite her in the back side. >> shepard: is it your sense that once this phase of the trial does begin that we're going to hear a lot more of this gruesome testimony or are we moving forward with something else? >> well, we're going to hear gruesome testimony initially through the medical examiner because he does have to establish the cruel and heinous nature of the crime in order to get the ago vaghtd factor and to get her the death penalty. so we are going to suffer through that again. but i think it will be pretty quick because the jury has already heard most
4:10 pm
of that already, shep. >> shepard: all right, brian. thanks very much. live for us from phoenix. criminal definition attorney brian foster. well, some of those in charge of monitoring and launching our nation's nuclear missiles are completely unqualified. so badly prepared that their superiors have taken them off the job. the stunning revelation ahead. who is in charge of the nukes plus. how investigators say criminals around the world work together to poof off an enormous bank heist. 10s of millions of dollars drained in an operation that took military coordination. the details ahead from the journalists of fox news on this thursday fox report. before global opportunities were part of their investment sttegy... to the schools that gave them scholarships... before they planned for their parents' future needs and their son's future...

the record 17 officers from a unit at a base in minot, north dakota from rot in the ranks. jonathan, she's officers could actually launch the nukes? >> in a word, shep. yes. there are, of course, checks and balances but these officers whom the deputy commander described as having, quote: an attitude problem, could potentially have launched nukes. although the air force chief of staff who coincidentally was at a committee hearing on capitol hill today played down that so-called attitude problem. listen. >> he was talking about this attitude among a few of the crew members who he had heard about who he didn't think were committed enough staying fully aware of all of the responsibilities of their job all the time and getting better continuously in the form of heir mission. they could do the job but they didn't have the attitude and drive he expected to see from the missile crew members.
